The Okaloosa Island Pier will be doing upgrades and maintenance now that we have entered the offseason winter months. 

The octagon section of the pier will be closed on Wednesday, December 13th and Thursday, December 14th, 2023 for renovations, including replacing the entire fence, repainting, and some minor plumbing and electrical work. 

  • This closure is weather permitting. 

If there is inclement weather or parts delays, the project will be postponed until after the holidays, according to Pier Manager Eric Brown. The rest of the pier will remain open during the octagon closure. 

The tentative date for reopening the octagon is Friday, December 15th at 5am, assuming the maintenance goes as planned. 

The closure allows the pier to complete the renovations quickly and safely.
